Andela Research Finds Increasing Demand for Global Remote Tech Talent
Almost 9 in 10 enterprises want to increase reach for tech talent in other countries, survey shows
NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Andela, the global talent marketplace, released a survey today showing that more than 1 in 4 tech workers (27%) remain remote and 83% of enterprises say that number will increase or remain the same over the next six months. The survey, conducted in partnership with Foundry, included 211 enterprises with an average employee size of 5,500 across the U.S., UK, and Germany.
For companies not looking to increase remote tech talent, 47% cited concerns over employee productivity and engagement, a common refrain among companies mandating a return to the office. The survey also found that 88% of enterprise companies want to find tech talent in other countries even though language and cultural barriers remain a top challenge (38%).
"Enterprises will continue to tap into global talent as they work to bridge in-house skills gaps," says Jeremy Johnson, Andela CEO and Co-Founder. "Global reach and certified talent pools are critical, so enterprises need a trusted partner to source the right talent. Over the past decade, Andela has partnered with leading enterprises to scale their technical teams with the most sought after roles and skills."
